Also includes station (the names, occupiers, areas, and grazing capabilities of each). The population of every city, borough and post-town and county. The height of the mountains ; length, rise, and fall of the rivers. the quantity of cereals, green crop, hay, wine, and tobacco produced each year in the different counties, and all the geological, mineralogical, and physiological information obtainable from the most reliable and authentic sources.

Hiscock states for prospective purchaser the following; ‘This Atlas is the first of the kind ever produced in the colony, and will be thoroughly authentic to date of publication. It will be found eminently useful to the Merchant and Squatter as a work of reference, and to the schoolmaster or man of family it is best means extant of furnishing the rising generation of the colony with a thorough geographical knowledge of Victoria’. (June 1874)
